Wedding Photographer Review

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I have a few.. Mainly the ones taken between the Wedding and the Reception with the sunset in the background

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They were great at being "out of the way". They took some really great candid photos of my family. I really will cherish the ones of my grandparents.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had two photographers and an awesome leather bound book with all of our photos professionally matted in the book.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

We felt right at home with the Meeks. They were just like part of the family by the end of the night.

Far Beyond my Expectations

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I don't think it would be possible to pick just one. They were able to capture so many wonderful emotions: excitement and craziness with me and my bridesmaids, a happy saddness between me and my daddy, and joy and love between me and my husband. They were all....perfect.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

It seemed like Julie and Louis were everywhere (because I have the pictures to prove it), but you never saw the two of them! They did a wonderful job of capturing the moment without being in the moment. They were wonderful with candids, action shots, and portraits! They captured candids from my bridesmaid's father about to plunge my tub the morning of the wedding to my mother-in-law (wife of a preacher) reinacting John Travolta on Saturday Night Fever. Theh portraits were absolutely wonderful. Julie and Louis mix traditional with unique poses to create the perfect blend of wedding portraits.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Engagement picture shoot, bridal portrait shoot, all day with Louis and Julie on my wedding day (probably from 9 am until 11:00 pm), a custom wedding album for me and my hubby, two parent albums, and a large, framed portrait from the wedding. They also drove from Clinton to Starkville to shoot the wedding.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Julie and Louis made us feel completely at ease. At first, we were skeptical of having the engagement photo shoot because we had already had a terrible experience with another photographer. Need less to say, my hubby-to-be wasn't too excited about going through the whole process all over again. When we got there, they made my husband and I feel completely at ease, and we are so glad that we chose JM Photography to capture the greatest day of our lives :)

What was your favorite wedding photo?

The black and whites
The one of Karla with her dad
The one of Karla and her sister
The couple shots outside the church with tree arches in the background and touches of color from the flowering trees of spring

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I don't know how they avoided it and were still able to get such great shots, but they did. Experience, I guess. The composition on many reminded us of our visit to Italy and looked so European. We had a very lively reception and they captured the joy and fun of it all. God gave us a beautiful spring evening and they took full advantage in their capture of it.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Bridal sitting and Portrait
400 photo memory album
2 36 photo parents album
2 photographers
had them entire wedding day,
which included the bridal brunch

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

They were calm and reassuring when we were harried. They moved us along and completed the process even though we were 30 min. late getting started (no fault of the photographers)and did so in a manner that did not feel rushed. They handled everything with professionalism and poise. They blended with our guests and appeared to enjoy being there for our special celebration.

North Meets South Wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

The picture of my husband looking like a hot model in black and white, the ones with my dad, and the outside shots leaning against the church. The family pictures were also very sweet!!!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

All the above! They got so many great shots starting with the bridesmaid luncheon and ending with Elvis at the reception. Actions shots (lots of dancing!) and beautiful church and outdoor pictures.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Engagement Pictures, Bridal Portrait, Large Album for us and two parent albums.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Very personable and sweet. Worked great with our wedding party. As a team, they worked fast when I arrived late to the church (due to a hair appointment) and made sure they still got all the great shots!They kept me relaxed (when I was nervous) and made the picture taking process enjoyable (which is no easy task!)

A&J Wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

We have several - A&J after the wedding in the courtyard, A twirling around before the ceremony and A, her Dad and brother in the church. We also are very pleased with the group family photo - every face of the 34 in the picture is clear and it is just a beautiful picture.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Julie and Louis are very professional and know how to take the pictures without disruptions. We were very happy to see so many fun and unusual candids of the big day. Our portrait sessions were relaxed on both occasions - engagement and bridal. A&J's dog was a part of the engagement session and those shots are just great.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We always knew that the photography would be a very important part of the wedding day. Without a doubt, one of the best parts of the wedding was the superior work done by Julie and Louis. A&J enjoyed working with them so much because they bring a perfect mix of fun and professionalism to the shoot. They were with us early in the day and did not leave until after A&J left the reception. Our albums are absolutely gorgeous and the portraits are out for all to see.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Julie and Louis were able to deal with the strict rules and time constraints of the church and produce pictures that were more beautiful than we could have imagined. We highly recommend Julie and Louis to other brides and grooms out there!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I have many, but one of ones I love is the picture of my bridesmaids sitting in the pew with one arm propped on the back of the pew looking back over their shoulder. Too cute!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They were great with getting the "unposed for" pictures. They worked well with my videographer and were very patient with the flowergirl and rowdy ring bearers. They also captured so many action shots that I missed espeically of my parents and father-in-law "cutting a rug!" Due to their great work, I now re-live my special day thru their work!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I had two photographers, a 400 picture album, a 60 picture album, engagement pictures and a bridal session.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Julie and Louis were very kind and courteous especially during the emotional parts. They were great at capturing every detail and that meant so much because the day went by so fast and I didn't get to see all the details of my wedding. Because of them, I now I have my memories!

Repeat customer

What was your favorite wedding photo?

As part of our wedding package Julie took engagement pictures for us. My favorite picture is one that Julie captured of my husband and I when we weren't even posing...we were sitting waiting for the next shot and my husband leaned down and kissed me on the forehead...Julie caught this picture. She is wonderful at taking the planned pictures...but even better at taking the ones you don't expect. My favorite wedding photo was taken by Louis...it is of my husband and I looking over our shoulders as we left the sanctuary...it captures our happiness in that moment.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Julie was so wonderful during the entire day. She was very calm and that had a calming effect on me. I tease her that she has the patience of Job...but she really does. At one point she and Louis even helped steam my dress! That was definitely not in the contract! They have the quality of high priced photographers with the loving nature of smaller business.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We were given a proof album, wedding album and discs of all our pictures from that day. Included was the engagement pictures as well as both Louis and Julie. This was wonderful because Julie got the posed pictures while Louis could capture the in between moments. They are truly a wonderful team

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

As I said..Julie is very calm and very patient. She makes it clear that the day is all about the couple..and what we wanted was what she did. So often photographers have their own ideas and agendas..Julie is very open to whatever the customer may want and works very hard to please. I loved working with Julie so much that I had her take portraits of our baby after he was born. The time and energy that Louis and Julie take is very unique. They are not "finished" until the customer is completely happy.

The Vintage Car Photo

What was your favorite wedding photo?

This is the most elegant photography that I have ever seen--the pose of Julia & Jason Burrage by the Old Train Depot and the Old antique car. Vintage all the way and what a masterpiece of photography. The lighting against the old lights and reflections in this photo puts Louis and Julia Meeks in the Hall of Fame again. It takes talent and master of arts to capture something so breathtaking and Julie had the best teacher-- her Dad who still holds the World's record for the most weddings he photographed. What a gift to pass down to your daughter and her husband who is such a compliment to her! Definitely the dynamic duo of Wedding Photography in the south. Photos like this one only comes along once in a career. Hawkins did our daughters weddings and every photo is still in mint condition. Tip o the hat to Julie and Louis----great job--great subjects---great car in photo.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They were on thier toes the entire time--very congenial and always there to capture the perfect pose.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

All of above!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Julia and Louis never meet a stranger and will make anyone feel at ease and happy, to create the images they are trying to capture---and they score! Amazing to watch them work.

Emma and Willie

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I love all of the photos taken, so I really have quite a few favorites. However, if I had to pick a favorite I would pick the image of Willie and I captured during our first dance as husband and wife.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Julie and Louie are professionals,of course, therefore they knew how move around the ceremonies in a manner that did not distrub our day. The candid, actions shots, and portraits were...are amazing!!!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

My husband and I received an album, carrier with our initials engraved on it, zip drive, engagement pictures, pre-wedding photos, and the two of the most amazing photographers ever. :~)

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Julie and Louie were very polite to my family. They made sure that they were comfortable with the positions they were placed in and accepted suggestions for positions as well. They did not act as strangers. They blended in and got aquainted with just about everyone. My husband and I still talk about how phenominal they were with us and our family.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They got some great traditional wedding pictures, but also got great shots of everyone just being themselves. Some of the serious shots were so artist and we really liked the angles and lighting.

Our package included engagement pictures, bridal portrait, an album of all our wedding pictures, and 2 parent albums. There were two photographers which was great because they could get 2 different shots of the same thing.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

They were very easy to work with. They made us enjoy the day and not feel rushed. We were able to have fun and they got great photos of our day! They were the best photographers and I would recommend them to anyone!

Very Happy Bride

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I had so many I can't choose. Probaly it could be narrowed down to a picture of my daughter kissing my cheek or my husband kissing me....oh the possibilities are endless. They are so very creative with coloring and digital enhancing. These people made us look like models...trust me, that is a task in itself.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

The photographers were practically unseen once the wedding started. Before the wedding, they were so creative about shots that were posed as well as shots that were just in the moment. Not so posey-posey are the most beautiful to me but it is just as imoortant to have to posed ones with family. My husband and I aren't big on the whole public affection thing and I was worried at first that would be an issue at wedding time. Julie and her husband knew just how to pose us in an action shot that made us look like a really romantic couple. That is shocking!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

A beautiful heavy duty album is included in the millions of pictures that are included (actually there are about 500 pictures that you get--but who is counting.) I didn't choose to get any engagement pictures taken. Julie and her husband are both taking pictures at the same time and from all different angles. That makes a tremendous difference to have a million angels...just a another peice of their creativity. We took pictures for four hours before the wedding and then they continued unseen into the wedding.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

The photographers are both very personable people and very easy to talk to. They are very open and receptive to your requests and vision that you have for your own wedding. They did a GREAT job of keeping everyone included and on a happy note. I even have pictures of wedding guests that weren't evne in the wedding party...pictures that I didn't even think of telling her to take, she got it all. Julie is really good at keeping the kids happy, especially when they have taken so many pictures that they are falling to peices. Even in pictures that I just knew they were going to look so miserable and tired, the photographers put a spin on the picture so that it wasn't even noticed. Even members of the family that didn't like to have their picture taken looked amazing. I couldn't possibly think of anything that they could have done differently to improve anything. This couple has it down to an art and work very well together.

The Best Photographers Ever!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

They were all awesome. I think we liked the candid shots the most, although the bride's favorite photo is a shot where the camera is looking over the groom's shoulder at the bride who has her arms around the groom's neck. The groom doesn't have a favorite because there were so many good ones.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They helped to make the day. We would not have had nearly as much fun as we did if they had not been there. They helped break the tension and were very helpful at handling all of the grandparents. They definitely didn't disrupt anything.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

They did our engagement photos and the bridal portrait. Julie and Louis were at both the wedding and the reception taking pictures constantly. We received an initial album of around 600 pictures and then picked out a number of our favorites for a smaller, coffee table album. We also received a flash drive with all of the pictures from the initial album in full size and finished form with no copyright attachments or watermarks.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

They were so happy and relaxed that it made everything else easier. The pictures were the one thing that we didn't worry about on that day because we knew they were going to turn out great. We highly recommend their services for any occasion.

Kegley/Little wedding... from mother of the bride

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Gosh....they were all so great. A particular favorite is one of my husband with both of our daughters. I will treasure the expressions captured forever, they truly enjoyed the day.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

We took most of the photos before the wedding so as to keep the spiritual aspect of the wedding intact. I was surprised when viewing the proofs to see just how many photos were actually made during the actual ceremony. I honestly don't know how they did it but I was completely unaware of them during the actual ceremony. I am so thankful too for those photos. I especially like the one of Katie sneaking a peek at her husband during the prayer! We were thrilled with all of the photos.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We ordered a package PERFECT for us from quite a few options. We have a couple of albums, prints, and a photo clip of all the pictures of the wedding. We did get an engagement session. I know my daughter said this also helped them to feel more comfortable with Julie and Louis before the actual wedding day.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

They are professionals! We met with Julie and Louis several times before the actual wedding date. Julie and Louis are quick and Louis is quite the comic making the posed photos easy to do too. They fit in with us and we felt like they were just part of our family. They gave excellent instructions, worked quickly but were never bossy nor made us feel rushed.

They captured beautiful memories

What was your favorite wedding photo?

It was taken near some windows in the churches sancutuary. I was standing in front of my groom and the natural stained galss light was shining on us. Our bodies were both toward the camera but our faces were looking at each other - me over my shoulder at him and he down towards me. Its a peaceful picture that I'll treasure always. A perfect reflection of the of love we share.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I can't say because I honestly didn't even know they were there, accept for the posed shots (which we did before the wedding and it was great). Louis got a lot of great candid shots and Julie posed us perfectly for rest. They are easy to work with and do a fabulous job.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We ordered a package that fit our budget that did include and engagement session and an album. We ordered a handful of prints for frames.

Great for out-of-town Brides too!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

It's hard to narrow it down, but I would have to say the picture where my new husband is kissing my cheek. I am smiling ear to ear. Julie really captured the moment.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I thought I would be disappointed because I didn't even notice her taking casual shots! But she did and so did Louis. There was a perfect balance in my wedding book of posed and action. When Julie was shooting the posed ones, she followed my list exactly and kept things movin smoothly and quickly.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

When Julie and Louis met with us (late at night, across town, just so you know), they gave us their packages and prices. In addition to those packages, they offered many add-ons and additions- you can completely personalize it to your taste. We ordered our wedding book and got many reprints from the book. Many of our guests used the website to order reprints for themselves.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Julie took many shots of the same pose and so I don't think anyone felt pressured to perform. Louie and Julie then narrowed it down to the best shot for our book. Most of the time I didn't know the casual shots were being taken and those turned out great!

JM Photography was FABULOUS!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I have several favorites! One that comes to mind is a shot of my new husband looking at me. The picture was taken behind me and I am looking up and off to the side. I don't know how to describe it, but it was really cool. Then, there is another one in which we are facing each other in front of a stained glass window. They did everything in the picture in black and white except for the window colors. It has a very dramatic effect. Truthfully, it is really hard to say that I only have one or two favorites. My entire album was so much better than I ever expected!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

They were great. I do NOT like to have my picture taken....AT ALL....and I really did not mind so much with the way that they handled things. They were also very patient with some cranky flower girls!During the ceremony, I don't think that anyone even noticed that they were there! They got some lovely shots, though! Both the posed pics and the action shots are nice. They made us look so good! :)

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I don't exactly remember how much we paid for the pictures. We met with them and prepaid for the package several months before our actual wedding. I do know that they showed up several hours before the wedding to get some family pictures and did not leave until well after my husband and I were gone. Our package included a huge album of pictures. They were all beautifully placed into a monogrammed album and matching bag. We ordered extra copies of our favorites. As far as the engagement session, I did not ask them about those packages because I didn't really want any. As I said before, I usually cannot stand to have my picture taken! :)

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

They were both very patient and they had a very calming influence on a group of people who were having a VERY CRAZY day. Overall, I would recommend JM Photgraphy to any bride. I was realy very happy with my pictures. I never thought my husband and I could look so good!
